I just barely got a handle on the first life and now people are telling me I need to experiance the second one? Come on.
I am very late to the party here, But the place where i work has an island in second life, so I owe it too myself to fiddle with the program to the point where i am comfortable with how it works, especially considering that my department is now becoming more involved. So rather than cover ground already out there I was wondering if any people who consider themselves acolytes of the CaffiNation had any fun tips for me navigating and traversing the landscape.
But you can call me Pzul Blitz
So far I’ve learned that flying is fun, Oceans, and hills suck. I can teleport with somewhat reckless abandon. I finally found a way to rotate the camera to take this spiffy photo. But other than that I got nothing. So email, comment or chat with me if you have any suggestions for fun places to visit or places to go to learn about how to work within second life.
I found the Secondlife tutorials by torly linden to be cheesy but really helpful. Apparently he’s got some new ones out but I haven’t checked them out. One of the better things I learned was advanced camera movement and to use the Windlight client which made all the difference for me on my MacBook. Unfortunately my MBP model has a memory hole with SL and will eventually crash there is a workaround but I have yet to use it.
A very brief update to say that that bug has been corrected and the latest stable release of the SL client is great. I’m really enjoying the flycam that I’ve configured to work with my game controller. It makes SL exploration so much easier.
